OpenSUSE Install :: Update To 11.3 Has Lost Boot Entry?

Aug 27, 2010

my own fault really,just dived in to do the update and did not back everything up. I have three disks in my machine one winxp for games , one was suse 11.2 and added lately one for ubuntu. added the ubuntu disk installed and this replaced the grub loader, still gave me all my previous options but does not look as nice as the suse one.so I did update on 11.2 and thought would give me the nice one back and still have all my entries. Er no. entry for win and 11.3 but no ubuntu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse Lost After Update - How To Boot In To Terminal?

Oct 15, 2010

I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Windows Entry In Grub After Update

Jul 9, 2010

Ubuntu's update manager recently updated the Grub menu.lst file. It let me decide if I wanted to keep my old menu.lst or the new one. After deciding that I was fine with the new one, I found out that I can no longer boot into Windows 7. I had previously edited menu.lst so that Windows would be at the top of the list, however, I didn't notice that this had put it into the automagic update area, and I realize now that I should have just edited what the default number was instead of moving around the entries.

Anyways, I can no longer access my Windows 7 OS via Grub, and I was wondering what sort of fix I can have for this. I've tried running update-grub, but it hasn't fixed the problem. The Windows bootloader is on the first partition of the only hard drive, as far as I can remember.

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Looses Menu Entry After Kernel Update?

Oct 15, 2010

I have manually added an entry for Ubuntu in my grub menu, using Yast. But every time the kernel is updated, this entry disappears. On the other hand, the one for Windows, that was added during OpenSuse's installation, is still there. So how can I keep this entry for Ubuntu ?

Edit : when I save the menu configuration in Yast, I get the following message :
Code:
Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
kbuildsycoca4 running...
kbuildsycoca4 running...

OpenSUSE Install :: Lost Boot For Suse

Jan 24, 2011

I had mounted the pen drive then dismounted. I found out that by putting the pendrive into my sat receiver recorder with Ext3 mad the machine go crazy and I have had to sort that out before this! To say my wife was mad as hell is an understatement, but this was what I was told to do on AVForum.But now this leaves me in a predicament. I have no OpenSues booting. It goes through all the loading and then it asks me for the password with all the script showing and not the desktop. It says repair boot after this. Is there a simple way to resolve it? I think it was looking for the pendrive. Well I had to reformat that back to FAT.

OpenSUSE Install :: Lost Boot Of Main Partition?

Apr 8, 2011

Ive been running crunchbang on my system, and yesterday decided to try opensuse so i can install the novell client. I ran the live gnome cd and during installation I shrank my main partition down and created a new partition for opensuse. Installation went well other than sometimes programs close and make the part of my desktop that they occupied useless.

Question 1) I can see my crunch bang files through opensuse but i cannot find or boot into crunch bang.

question 2) Why are these programs closing and then killing my desktop? Say i have a Firefox in the top left of my desktop and it errors and closes. I go open Firefox again, anywhere that the old Firefox window was in ( not click able). My cursor will turn to the text cursor as soon as it enters the x y position. I have to restart the laptop to be able to click file or insert a web address.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 And Win7 Dual Boot - Grub Lost?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to Dual-boot Windows & and OpenSUSE 11.4, and have run into walls all over the place. Here is what I did:

2. Installed OpenSUSE using default partition options.
3. Booted into OpenSUSE with no problem
4. Tried booting into Windows, no joy.
5. Got that figured out, now I can get into Windows.
6. GRUB is gone, so now I can't get back into OpenSUSE.

OpenSUSE Install :: BIOS With A Boot Manager - Update Or Install?

Jan 7, 2010

I had my motherboard fail and had to do a replacement. The motherboard I got has a feature (I don't think I can shut off) that lets you select what drive you want to boot off of. I have XP installed on the first drive and openSUSE 11.1 on the second drive. I am running openSUSE 11.2 with KDE 3.5 and I simply dropped my drives onto this new motherboard. I can boot up (Linux) just fine but am having other issues with my mouse. I am thinking of Updating to openSUSE 11.2 and the current KDE version.

Should I just update to 11.2 or do a new install. I have LOTS of data in my home directory I really don't want to lose and have a partition for data as well that is pretty full. I don't want to lose this stuff. What should I do about Grub with this BIOS that lets you pick which drive to boot off of? Put Grub in the MBR of the drive with openSUSE on it and nuke the MBR of the XP drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Boot After Update?

Jan 5, 2010

After todays kernel update openSUSE 11.2 will not boot I have both Ubuntu 9.10 and openSUSE 11.2 dual booting and since I installed Ubuntu first, it is using the Ubuntu GRUB as my boot menu. After todays kernel update, when I select openSUSE 11.2 from the GRUB menu I get Error, you must open kernel first: Press any key to continue... Pressing a key reboots the machine. I'm thinking that the update did not update the GRUB menu from Ubuntu to open the new version kernel. How can I manually edit it or get GRUB to scan for the new kernel so openSUSE will boot?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Following Update

Sep 18, 2010

I just finished installing openSUSE 11.3 off the (downloaded) DVD. All was good. Then the Online Update recommended a huge swathe of patches and I accepted them. Now when I try to reboot, it gets as far as started to display (fade in) the main window, and then freezes - mouse and keyboard are dead.

Rebooted several times - same problem every time.I can boot to the console if I so choose from the Menu on the login screen.I guess some part of the update is bad. any idea how I can find out which part and fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot, Can't Update?

Mar 18, 2011

I have upgraded from SuSE version 11.3 (which worked well) using zypper dup. Unfortunately, an earlier post regarding resolution of a CPU crash during boot turned out to be premature, as it is now intermittent. When booting, the system: (1) UDV reports a CPU crash (on-screen dump)(2) if the computer is reset (turned off, then on again), it will eventually either boot up normally (rare) or display a screen with a very wrong resolution setting. Repeatedly rebooting will eventually tease the system into normal operation, but it usually takes several attempts. Several Grub parameters have been tried but don't seem to make any difference. The display adapter is an Intel 845G for which a /etc/dhcpd.conf file has been configured.

(3) Once operating, the system cannot update, either using zypper up or the Gnome GUI update manager. Running zypper update from root yields:GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL). After several such messages, the update proceeds, but locks up with: Retrieving: timezone-2011b_2011c-1.2.1_0.3.1.i586.delta.rpm [0% (0 B/s)]Interestingly, the download of timezone data often continues up to 74%, then stalls. Initially, the timezone file begins to download, but stops at 74%. The B/s then counts down to zero. The download attempt will time out, then continue to retry until manually aborted.The GLib error can be supressed with su - root, but update still fails with the timezone download.

When I installed openSUSE 11.3 I already had Ubuntu 10.04 installed and I installed these 2 OS's side by side but openSUSE didn't seem to add a Ubuntu menu entry in GRUB boot list So now I can only boot into openSUSE 11.3 and not Ubuntu 10.04. How can I fix this?I found in YaST an option to add extra boot menu entries but i don't know how to use it... or maybe there's also another way i can add Ubuntu entry to my GRUB boot menu?

OpenSUSE Install :: Killing A Repository Entry?

Jun 26, 2011

I am having a problem since upgrading from OPENSuSE 11.2 to 11.4 (both 64bit). The problem goes back to some issue with repositories which is what "forced" me into an 11.4 upgrade.

So, upon completing the install, and every time I run YAST to do updates, I get a message about this: "Error refreshing service ATI Repository (http://www.ati.com/suse/11.2):" How is it that this repository entry survived the upgrade install? Ok, forget that, how do I get rid of this when I can't get it to display in the list of repositories I have?

What is even worse, I don't have ATI drivers on this system (I had uninstalled them a year ago, pulled in the NVidea, esw, etc.) as I had put an NVidea adapter card in, in place of the ATI built in (on the MOBO). Somehow that dropping of the repository didn't work, and now I have this thing in limbo? ps. I can't figure out what string to search in my file system or I'd have deleted the sucker last night during the install manual reboot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Xorg Update - Boot Into Run Level 3 Stops

Jun 8, 2011

There was an xorg update that I did today (June 8) and when try to boot into runlevel 3, it stops when it gets to starting up sntp. I also saw that it said DHCP client not running. When I try again (push the power button) and allow it to do what it wants, everything seems to start up just fine. I'm asking about this because I need to re-install my NVIDIA graphics card driver. For the boot options, I've tried clearing the text (I don't remember what they are at the moment) and typing:

Code:
nomodeset 3
and when that failed, I've tried it as
Code:
nomodeset3
but still get stuck at the same spot. I've also tried it without clearing the text but still it gets stuck.

How can I get to runlevel 3 in order to re-install my graphics card driver? I cannot run my 3D software without it. Can I switch to runlevel 3 from the usual (normal GUI) screen? I can't remember the command. I'm running SuSE 11.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dual Boot Grub Protection From Win 7 Update?

Jun 17, 2011

I saw a good quick fix for grub after win 7 updates over here

My question is, after WIN 7 sp1 it seems every update win 7 does borks grub and resets the system to boot from the Win 7 boot partition, Is there a way to prevent this or is it going to be a boot from CD and repair after every update?

Cause I know M$ isn't going to want to fix it as they don't like sharing systems.

I'm running
OpenSuse 11.4 Win 7 sp1 dual boot

OpenSUSE Install :: After Kernel Update No Ext4 Support At Boot Time

Apr 20, 2010

telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?

OpenSUSE Install :: Error 15 - File Not Found After Update 11.3 On A Dual-boot PC With Ubuntu 9.10

Oct 22, 2010

Recently I've installed Open Suse 11.3 along with Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC ( made it a dual-boot OS ). This morning while logged in, in Open Suse 11.3, found out that there were important update for kernel in Yast. So, did the update and then required to restart the PC. In the Grub/boot menu, I chose to log-in to Open Suse 11.3, but after a while it returned with " Error 15, file not found ". Luckily I was able to log-in in Ubuntu 9.10. Assumed that Error 15 is always related to misplaced or wrong configuration of Grub in the partition, I did several searching via Google, and found this possible solution HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive . So I tried the " Broken Grub menu: boot to the menu, drop to a console and boot openSUSE direct " method. But rightly after the " find /boot/grub/menu.lst " command as instructed in the solution, it returned with ( hd0,0 ) and ( hd0,4 ). Why there are 2 bootloader in the Grub ? Which bootloader should I choose ? And for convenience, here is my " menu.lst " folder that I get via Terminal in Ubuntu 9.10 :

$ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
